Have you Been Arrested in Lincoln and Can’t Make Bail?
It can happen any time of the day or night – you get arrested – and the next thing you know, you’re in jail. Bail is set and you could get out if you only had enough money. Not even your family members can come up with the large amount of bail that the magistrate has set. To top it off, if you paid a cash bail to the court in the Lincoln area, you would have to wait until after the case is concluded to get your money back. And the refund process can take several additional months.
There’s an easy answer to your bail problem! Call Leonard Padilla Bail Bonds right away and we will bail you out. We’re pretty sure your stress level will plummet to almost pre-arrest levels.
How Do Bail Bonds in Lincoln Work?
You are probably asking “How do they do this? What will it cost me? Is it Legal?” At Leonard Padilla Bail Bonds, we comply 100% with laws and regulations regarding California bail bonds, and we are fully licensed with the California Insurance Commission. The law states that we must charge a premium, or fee 10% of the bail. If your bail is $20,000, your premium would be $2,000. That’s it. This fee is non-refundable; however, you don’t have to part with a large amount of your own money for several months, and we are experts at bailing people out. Our friendly agents can have your paperwork processed in less than 1 hour and get you out of jail quickly. The amount of time it takes to get someone released following the submission of paperwork depends on the jail you are detained in. We can usually advise you regarding this once we know your jail.
Is the Premium Negotiable?
In some cases, the bail premium can be discounted. If you are a U.S. veteran, have retained an attorney, or are a member of a union, the premium is 8% of the bail.
What Happens if I Don’t Pay Bail in Lincoln?
In the event that you don’t come up with bail at all, you must stay in jail until your first court hearing. This hearing is called an arraignment. Sometimes the judge changes their decision at the arraignment after hearing both sides, and your bail could be reduced or eliminated, or increased.
Is there a Contract to Obtain a Bail Bond?
Yes. You must sign a contract with the bail bond agent promising to show up in court for all of your hearings. You also will need a co-signer to sign the contract on behalf of you. This is someone who will be responsible for you and make sure that you live up to your obligation to appear in court. If you do not appear and flee your case, the co-signer may become liable for the entire bail.
What if I Can’t Afford the Premium?
In the event that the 10% fee is too much to pay at once, no worries. We can help with an easy and flexible financing program for those who qualify. We can usually tailor a program to fit your needs, and you’ll be amazed how easy and efficient it is to get your bail bond processed.
